Can you help get our sanctuary ready for Easter? Join us Saturday, April 20th at 9:00am to decorate as we prepare to celebrate Easter!

Livestock and Lilies! The Ministry of Outreach and Advocacy is providing the opportunity to purchase livestock and other farming tools and supplies for farm families in need of support.  We will decorate the Church for Easter with both flowers and stuffed animals to represent this outreach effort.  
Through the ELCA good gifts program you can buy seeds, school supplies, mosquito nets, chickens, pigs, goats, sheep, honey bees, fruit trees, farm tools or even a cow starting at $10 and up depending  on the selection for use by farmers in developing countries around the world.  
 When you purchase an item you can either select a donor gift card or a “Live Generously” T-shirt provided by Thrivent Financial while they last.   If you’d like to make a donation, contact the office.
